India is facing one of the worst situations of the COVID-19 pandemic and lakhs of people are getting affected every day. Medical supplies and isolation centres are getting out of hands with an increasing number of patients every day.

So, a lot of tech giants, individuals and other nations have shown their support towards India and Qualcomm has again shown its support towards India. The US-chipmaker has pledged $4 million (over Rs 29.7 crore) to help India fight against COVID-19 pandemic.

The second wave has shattered India’s healthcare system to its core, and to help the nation, a fund of around Rs 30 crore is donated by the Qualcomm Charitable Foundation and Qualcomm India. It will be used to provide critical hospital infrastructure, medical equipment, and supplies to support the medical fraternity in waging the battle.


“As a company, we have been actively planning how we can best provide relief to the communities in India through effective philanthropic action. We recognised that one of the key areas of strain on the system is the shortage of medical supplies and lifesaving equipment,” the company said in a statement.

India has already reported a peak of 4 lakh cases in a day already and is the highest reported. Thousands of people are dying, many of them due to lack of oxygen or medical supplies. For over a week now, we see over three lakh Covid cases every day; in this situation, Qualcomm’s this initiative is much appreciated.
